Idrieus (or Hidrieus), son of *Hecatomnus and younger brother of *Mausolus, was *satrap (see mausolus) of the Persian province of *Caria351–344 bce with his sister-wife *Ada. Idrieus helped *Phocion of Athens to suppress the revolt from Persia of *Cyprus (Diod. Sic. 16. 42: mid-340s). He was honoured at Ionian *Erythrae (SEG 31. 969, cf. RO 8) and made remarkably assertive Greek dedications at *Labraunda, including a temple with his own name prominent on the architrave (ILabraunda no. 16, cf. RO p. 434); there is another elegant Idrieus dedication from *Amyzon (OGI 235), and Idrieus and Ada were active at *Sinuri.
